Pancoast tumor?


Recommended Posts

This is a new term for me, which is amazing considering how much I read about lung cancer. (not that I'm an expert or anything.. I've just read to exhaustion since mom's diagnosis as I'm sure many of you have) I tried to google it but the info out there is a little vague and weird. Could someone point me to further reading?

Hi, having had one myself.


Others here have had Pancoast also and Kasey and Mary Ann. If you hit search at the top of the page and enter Pancoast , you will see we have talked about it here. Best wishes. Let me know if I can help further. Donna G

You are right -- there isn't a lot out there on Pancoast tumors, aka superior succulus (?) tumors.

There's a good protocol for taking care of them (blasting them into oblivion) and there's an excellent surgeon here at NIH who is very good with Pancoast tumors.

Welcome -- pancoasts are relatively rare, so I'm glad you found us.
